    About the only Transformer I'm after right now and I've got no car right now thanks to a coolant leak...

    That one also had 3-4 reaction black bumblebees and 4 zotekis on an endcap by the preschool toys for 50% off when I went yesterday.

    I'll keep an eye out but all I ever see are the usual suspects.

    Daytona Target has a few ractonites, 1 paleotrex, 2 Warpath, 1 Optimus Primal, and a couple of the new SS Dino and Bumblebee. Not much else worth noting. Orange City Target had the usual shelfwarmers, only new stuff I saw was some of the entry grade Gundam kits, 1 Warhammer Sister of Battle, first time I've seen warhammer figures at Target btw....and they had 1 of the G.i. Joe Roadblock figures, I believe it was the redeco release with muted colors.

    Walmart on Collins in Jacksonville had SS86 Scourge and Hotrod and Blurr.
    I also was shocked to see they had GI Joe classified Flint and Lady Jaye and Cobra Commander.
    They also had the Shang Chi Marvel Legends

    East Colonial Target had two Blurrs this morning but nothing else new TF-wise. They also had two Shang Chis but no more of the wave.

    So working from home has made my collection all the more ... obnoxious to live with so, while my cataloging is almost done, I need to think about how to off-load a lot of these damn toys. I looked into ebay stores (thanks, NothingHead!) but I am hoping I can sell/trade a lot of the stuff locally. Has anybody had any experience with the Facebook marketplace, particularly when dealing with local pickups? I am wary of Facebook in general but I am trying to avoid as much hassle as possible (including packing/shipping/etc). Any insight would be appreciated! And I'll make sure to post a link to whatever list I come up with of all my available stuff here first to give my fellow sighters first crack.

    Walmart off Narcoosee in the Lake Nona area has 4 Dinos and 4 B-127s.

    No new or notable Transformers at Waterford Target, but I left 2 Genghis/Rasputin TMNT sets in the NECA section after getting one for my buddy.

    I wish I lived closer to some of you. I never find NECA Ninja Turtles up here lol. Hoping to find the frog set soon.

    Anyone else collect Marvel Legends? I'm hoping to find Walgreens exclusive Nova and I'll snag it for anyone else interested.

    Pace Walmart:
    - Wave 2 Headmasters, 1 Skullcruncher, 1 Weirdwolf, 2 Highbrow, 2 Hardhead
    - Studio Series, 1 B-127, 3 Dino

    Me me me! My local Walgreens haven't stocked any ML in months, despite having shelf tags. I've currently got a friend in Canada looking out for Nova since I have little faith I'll see him here :/

    The Walgreens Marvel Legends definitely feel like they are getting harder to find. They come and go so quickly then nothing but scalper prices.

    Boynton Walmart has two Airazors, Huffer, and Ractonite.

    Boynton Target has Kingdom Optimus Primal and Blackarachnia and SS86 Blurr, Jazz, and Grimlock.

    Not TF related, but Boynton Target also has GI Joe Classified Roadblock, Scarlet, two Zartans, and two Cobra Infantry, plus several of the exclusive Marvel Legends Katy figure from the Shang Chi movie.
